Get to know the Pippa Dress
Sew a gorgeous asymmetrical dress with the Pippa Dress sewing pattern!
The Pippa Dress features an asymmetrical design with a line of buttons going down the front. These are just for decoration – no buttonholes needed – so you can have fun button-hunting, without worrying too much about the size.
Use larger buttons for a statement detail, or keep them small for a more delicate look. You could also leave the buttons off completely and catch-stitch the bodice instead.
Pick between a mini, midi or maxi length, and sew the skirt closed, or leave a sassy slit. We love this option especially for the maxi version.
Choose a fabric with plenty of drape such as viscose or crepe and go for a print or a beautiful solid.
Pippa looks great with or without tights, paired with boots, trainers, heels or sandals, so you can sew and wear her across all seasons!
We’ve given you three sleeve styles to choose from: short, 3/4 length or a full-length bell sleeve with elastic at the hem. The Pippa Dress is shaped with bust darts on the front bodice and waist darts on the back bodice, to create a beautiful fitted silhouette.
Our Pattern Insiders have made some stunning versions of the Pippa Dress, don’t they all look gorgeous in it?
